Thor steps forth from the clouds, ready to unleash his anger. Lightning ignites the sky.
Thor, god of thunder, protected humans and the other gods from the giants and who was especially popular among the Norse peasantry. He would smash giant’s heads with his mighty axe-hammer, Mjolnir. To wield this awesome weapon he needed iron gloves and a belt of strength. Mjolnir would return to Thor’s hand after being thrown and is symbolic of lightning. Thor was very well-known for his quick and hot temper. Our day of the week, Thursday, is named for him.
